I might not be the most fashionable person but like most people, I am a person that loves Autumn. The weather, the colours, the changing of the seasons and the new energies that a new season brings – ugh, I love it all! Although Winter will always have my heart as my favourite season, Autumn comes a close second and I’m particularly enjoying it this year after an incredibly long, hot and unbearable Summer that we had here in the UK. Out with the shorts and in with the leggings and jumpers, I’m back to where I’m feel most like me and I think that shows with how motivated and inspired I am in the Autumn compared to the past 4 months. I’m not about to start bombarding you with information about what to wear this fall (because quite frankly, it’s up to you babes) I’m going to share some of my closest essentials – and home essentials – for this time of the year!
Unfortunately, I’m not in a position to be buying or renting my own home at the moment but I trust that when I become a millionaire sometime soon, I will be. I’m just kidding but we all know how difficult it can be to get on the property ladder right now, with house prices going up and up and up and the hope for young people ever moving out of their parents house getting slimmer and slimmer. But obviously, not impossible. Lots of young people do manage it and that’s great. Although I’m fairly happy with my position right now, I’ve always had a love for home decor and home interiors. You should see how long I spend designing houses on The Sims! So designing and decorating a place of my own is something I often dream about. So, if money was no issue, here are some of my dream home interiors!
In the last year, I’ve gone from a pretty standard, kinda boring and average 25 year old to a 40 year old woman. I watch Louise Pentland (otherwise known as Sprinkle of Glitter, for anyone who doesn’t know) on YouTube doing her laundry and speed cleaning her kitchen on the regular. And I love it. My YouTube tastes have gone from watching fun, holiday vlogs and make-up hauls to watching someone clean their house. And you know what? I am totally down for that. I love cleaning. I love organizing things, sorting things out, making sure things look nice and hoovering… don’t get me started on how satisfying I find hoovering.
I am my mother’s daughter in that I love candles. Big, small, scented, un-scented, Yankee, own-brand – you name it, I love going into a shop and sticking my face in a bunch of gorgeous candles. Like, when they’re un-lit, of course. We have more candles in our house than we know what to do with but when Candles With Love contacted me asking if I’d like to review some of their candles, I wasn’t going to say no, was I? I like to think I have enough experience in candle sniffing to be a reliable judge of what makes a decent candle or not.
